Superb safari in Liuwa Plains

Zambia between 9 May 2012 and 16 May 2012

Trip rating: Excellent
"Liuwa is a sensational destination - remote, peaceful and with outstanding birdlife and large mammals. That is is not a 'Big Five' park (you won't see rhino, leopard or elephant, and as yet only a handful of buffalo are being reintroduced), it's a wonderful place to see vast numbers of wildebeest and zebra, astonishingly diverse bird species and predators in action.

Robin Pope and his team provide an outstanding service, and the overall experience is quite unique."

Feedback response

In the interests of transparency - readers should note that (unlike pretty much all of our other reviews) this traveller is not a normal customer; he is a Wanderlust journalist who wanted to travel to write an article about this trip, and hence who asked Expert Africa to assist him with his trip.

We've included his remarks here because, like many good and independent-minded journalists with whom we work, we know that his aim is to write accurately about his experiences, without fear, favour or bias.

Matamanene Camp

Matamanene Camp

"Wonderfully remote camp in Liuwa Plains"

5 nights Arrived 10 May 2012
"The simple style of Matamanene is in keeping with the atmosphere and charm of the location - without ostentatious frills, but peaceful and with a great sense of remote wilderness.

Robin Pope's team were never less than exceptional - from top-notch guiding and hosting to wonderful cooking, friendly and helpful service and a sense of being looked after but not over-fussed."
